    1. Connecting to Video and Audio Input and Output
      1. Video Input

The video input interface is BNC. The input video format includes: PAL/NTSC BNC (1.0VP-P, 75Q.).

The video signal should comply with your national standards.

The input video signal shall have high SNR, low distortion; low interference, natural color and suitable lightness.

Guarantee the stability and reliability of the camera signal

The camera shall be installed in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, inflammable, explosive substances and etc.

The camera and the DVR (WITHOUT HDD) should have the same grounding to ensure the normal operation of the camera.

Guarantee stability and reliability of the transmission line

Please use high quality, sound shielded BNC. Please select suitable BNC model according to the transmission distance.

If the distance is too long, you should use twisted pair cable, and you can add video compensation devices or use optical fiber to ensure video quality.

You should keep the video signal away from the strong electromagnetic interference, especially the high-tension current.

Keep connection lugs in well contact

The signal line and shielded wire should be fixed firmly and in well connection. Avoid dry joint, lap welding and oxidation.

      1. Video Output

Video output includes a BNC (PAL/NTSC1.0Vp-p, 75Q) output, a VGA output and HDMI output. System supports BNC, VGA and HDMI output at the same time.

When you are using pc-type monitor to replace the monitor, please pay attention to the following points:

  • To defer aging, do not allow the pc monitor to run for a long time.
  • Regular demagnetization will keep device maintain proper status.
  • Keep it away from strong electromagnetic interference devices.

Using TV as video output device is not a reliable substitution method. You also need to reduce the working hour and control the interference from power supply and other devices. The low- quality TV may result in device damage.

      1. Audio Input

These series Product audio input port adopt BNC port.

Due to high impedance of audio input, please use active sound pick-up.

Audio transmission is like video transmission. Try to avoid interference, dry joint, loose contact and it shall be away from high tension current.

      1. Audio Output

The audio output signal parameter is usually over 200mv 1KQ (BNC or RCA). It can directly connect to low impedance earphone, active sound box or amplifier-drive audio output device. If the sound box and the pick-up cannot be separated spatially, it is easy to arouse squeaking. In this case you can adopt the following measures:

  • Use better sound pick-up with better directing property.
  • Reduce the volume of the sound box.
  • Using more sound-absorbing materials in decoration can reduce voice echo and improve acoustics environment.
  • Adjust the layout to reduce happening of the squeaking.
    1. Connecting to Alarm Input and Output

Please read the followings before connecting.

Alarm input

  • Please make sure alarm input mode is grounding alarm input.
  • Grounding signal is needed for alarm input.
  • Alarm input needs the low-level voltage signal.
  • Alarm input mode can be either NC (normal Open) or NO (Normal Close)
  • When you are connecting two DVR (WITHOUT HDD)s or you are connecting one DVR

(WITHOUT HDD) and one other device, please use a relay to separate them.

Alarm output

The alarm output port should not be connected to high power load directly (It shall be less than 1A) to avoid high current which may result in relay damage. Please use the contactor to realize the connection between the alarm output port and the load.

How to connect PTZ decoder

  • Ensure the decoder has the same grounding with DVR (WITHOUT HDD), otherwise you may not control the PTZ. Shielded twisted wire is recommended and the shielded layer is used to connect to the grounding.
  • Avoid high voltage. Ensure proper wiring and some thunder protection measures.
  • For too long signal wires, 120Q should be parallel connected between A, B lines on the far end to reduce reflection and guarantee the signal quality.
  • “485 A, B” of DVR (WITHOUT HDD) cannot parallel connect with “485 port” of another

device.

  • The voltage between of A, B lines of the decoder should be less than 5V.

Please make sure the front-end device has soundly earthed

Improper grounding may result in chip damage.

word image 2037 64

Figure 5-15

Step 2 Configure the settings for network parameters. See 0.

Parameter Description
Net Mode Multi-address: Two Ethernet ports work separately through either of which you can request the Device to provide the services such as HTTP and RTSP. You need to configure a default Ethernet port (usually the Ethernet port 1 by default) to request the services from the device end such as DHCP, Email and FTP. If one of the
two Ethernet ports is disconnected as detected by networking testing, the system network status is regarded as offline.
  • Fault Tolerance: Two Ethernet ports share one IP address.

Normally only one Ethernet port is working and when this port fails, the other port will start working automatically to ensure the network connection.

When testing the network status, the network is regarded as offline only when both of the two Ethernet ports are disconnected. The two Ethernet ports are used under the same LAN.

  • Load Balance: Two network cards share one IP address and they

are working at the same time to share the network load averagely. If one of them fails, the other can continue working normally. When testing the network status, the network is regarded as offline only when both of the two Ethernet ports are disconnected. The two Ethernet ports are used under the same LAN.

CQ NOTE

The Device with single Ethernet port does not support this function.

Default Ethernet Port In the Ethernet Card list, select an Ethernet port as a default port.

This setting is available only when the Multi-address is selected in the Net Mode list.

IP Version In the IP Version list, you can select IPv4 or IPv6. Both versions are supported for access.
MAC Address Displays the MAC address of the Device.
DHCP Enable the DHCP function. The IP address, subnet mask and default gateway are not available for configuration once DHCP is enabled.
  • If DHCP is effective, the obtained information will display in the IP

Address box, Subnet Mask box and Default Gateway box. If not, all values show 0.0.0.0.

  • If you want manually to configure the IP information, disable the

DHCP function first.

  • If PPPoE connection is successful, the IP address, subnet mask,

default gateway, and DHCP are not available for configuration.

IP Address Enter the IP address and configure the corresponding subnet mask and default gateway.

CQ NOTE

IP address and default gateway must be in the same network segment.

Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
DNS DHCP Enable the DHCP function to get the DNS address from router.
Preferred DNS In the Preferred DNS box, enter the IP address of DNS.
Alternate DNS In the Alternate DNS box, enter the IP address of alternate DNS.
MTU In the MTU box, enter a value for network card. The value ranges from 1280 byte through 1500 byte. The default is 1500.
Parameter Description
CQ NOTE
• Modifying MTU value will cause network interruption and restart,
which interrupt the network service. There is a pop-up message to
let you confirm if you want to save the modification, if yes, the
modification takes effect.
• Suggested MTU values are as below.
O 1500: The biggest value of Ethernet information package.
This value is typically selected if there is no PPPoE or VPN
connection, and it is also the default value of some routers,
network adapters and switches.
O 1492: Optimized value for PPPoE.
O 1468: Optimized value for DHCP.

O 1450: Optimized value for VPN.

Step 2 Select the items that you want to diagnose and set the threshold (30 by default). See Table 5-35.

Parameter Description
Stripe A horizontal, vertical or diagonal stripe that might appear in the video because of device aging or electronic interruption. Such stripe brings visual interruption.
Noise Video noises such as blurriness or quality reduction that is caused by optical distortion or device problem during camera shooting.
Color Cast Variances in the normal proportions of RGB colors.
Parameter Description
Out of Focus Blurry video is caused during camera shooting, transferring and processing. Such condition is a common image quality reduction problem and defined as out of focus.
Overexposure The video brightness refers to the intensity of image pixel. The range is between 0 (the darkest black) and 255 (the brightest white). If the brightness exceeds the threshold, the image is over exposed.
Threshold The range is from 1 through 100. If the value after diagnosing is higher than what you set, the system activates the alarm to the corresponding diagnosing types such as stripe.
